Boeing astronaut flight off until next year for more fixes

  1. Really not sure what kind of "fireworks" I should expect with the SLS launch tbh, since that's a Boeing contract too. Hopefully we aren't getting the HD remake of some of those N1 launches.

  2. Acronyms, initialisms, abbreviations, contractions, and other phrases which expand to something larger, that I've seen in this thread:

  3. It's at the point where I don't think anyone should be purchasing Boeing aeronautic or astronautic products anymore.

  4. It seems Reddits worst enemy and “fraud” Elon musk is the only one who can reliably get to and fro space without an absurd budget. And people still cry that spaceX is getting so many government contracts

  5. I'm a big SpaceX fan boy but much less of an Elon Musk fan. I think the fact that SpaceX is a private company has a tremendous effect on their long-term focus. Most public companies are only thinking in terms of the next quarter.

  6. You don't want to rely on a single spacecraft. If that has a problem or an accident you lose your only access to space. NASA funded two programs, Starliner built by Boeing and Dragon built by SpaceX. At the time of the awards SpaceX was the underdog and Boeing was seen as the safe, reliable option. If NASA would have funded just a single program it would have been Starliner. The US would still be without its own crew capsule, and asking Russia to get seats on Soyuz would be really awkward now.
